WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Westchester County is considering separate legal action against travel websites that were allegedly underpaying taxes to local governments, according to lohud.com.
A similar class-action suit was filed in 2013 by 50 municipalities across the state but was reversed after a court ruled that a provision in Nassau County's tax law disqualified the suit from class-action status.

Westchester County charges a 3 percent tax on all hotel bookings.
